GORGEOUS PIANO SOUND AND HOW TO GET IT
In this course, Dr. Subotic will teach the pianists to produce their most beautiful sound on the piano by connecting their ear with their technique and imagination. The participants will learn how to listen to the sound they produce, and how to modulate it to achieve a variety of musical and colourful effects on the piano.
Dr. Subotic will instruct the participants on the role of technique, touch, and phrasing on sound production, from both historic and contemporary perspectives, with the goal of achieving highly personalized performance experience for each individual in the course.
The course will include a discussion of legendary pianists whose sound became synonymous with their name (Arthur Rubinstein, Rudolf Serkin, Sergei Rachmaninoff, among others) and how posture, pedal, arm weight, wrist, and finger technique influence and shape the individual’s sound production. The course will also connect other art forms (visual arts, dance, literature) with music making, and explore the role of imagination and inspiration on sound production. Course participants will be instructed individually and in the masterclass format.They will have daily opportunities to participate in technique sessions, perform, and attend the solo recital presented by Dr. Subotic.
In between the group sessions, there will be plenty of time to try out our nine grand pianos, including our new Steinway in the recital room.
The course is open to participants at ABRSM grade 8 and above.
This course is being run by Dr Vedrana Subotic.
